"Damned soldiers": from murderers to heroes

20
For two decades now, the authorities of post-socialist Poland have officially maintained the pseudo-heroic myth about the anti-Soviet underground of the Polish People’s Republic (NDP).


To designate the participants of this underground, active in 1944-1947, a special term is used - “cursed soldiers” (accent on the first syllable). Every year on March 1, official Poland pompously celebrates the Day of Remembrance of “the damned soldiers”.

The “damned” - because the leadership of their own country repudiated them, and the Polish special services, acting together with the Soviet authorities, organized a raid on the “damned” until they routed all the underground organizations. The last member of the damned underground was destroyed in 1963.

For the first time, one of the officers of the Polish Army called "damned" members of the anti-Soviet armed underground in a letter to the widow of a militant underground activist informing her about the execution of her death sentence against her husband: "Eternal shame and hatred of our soldiers and officers should persecute him and in the next world. Anyone who has Polish blood has cursed him, and his wife and children may curse him. ”

For many Poles, "damned soldiers" were ordinary bandits. Placed on the brink of physical survival, hiding in the woods, they survived through robbery, and their political views were imposed on them with murder and violence.

By 1950, the case went so far that the Polish Catholic Church condemned the “damned soldiers”, threatening canonical punishments to those priests who maintained contacts with the underground.

Evidence of crimes "damned soldiers" there are many. Sometimes the voices of those whose relatives fell victim to rampant banditry are heard from the pages of the Polish media. On the Internet, you can find videos that provide information about the involvement of the “damned” in the killing of more than 5 thousands of civilians, including 187 children.

Residents of the Orthodox Belarusian village of Zaleshany near Bialystok tell how in December 1946, a detachment of the “damned” under the command of Captain Romuald Rice (nicknamed Bury) broke into their village: the houses of the zaleshtsev were burned, their owners were killed along with their children. Many burned alive.

Bury spent the same punitive actions in the villages of Kontsovizna, Vulka Vygonovsk, Shpaki, Zane and others. In 1949, he was shot by a NDP court.

This did not prevent the Polish court in 1995 from rehabilitating R. Rice with the phrase “acted in an atmosphere of urgent need requiring ethically ambiguous decisions”. The Rice family received 180 thousand PLN compensation. Rice victims were not given a penny. The rest of the Poles are now being offered to consider massacres as “ethically ambiguous solutions” caused by an “urgent need”.

Seimas deputy Pavel Kukiz, leader of the Kukiz-15 party, commenting on the situation with the posthumous rehabilitation of killer Rice, wrote on his Facebook page: "The Institute of National Memory must carefully study the biographies of some of the damned" ... otherwise how can we present claims to those who honor Bandera ".

The Institute of National Remembrance (INP) is a government structure that is engaged in conversion. stories Poland to the needs of political conjuncture, which in turn is determined by the anti-Russian vector of the policy of Warsaw. Through the efforts of INP, Polish society imposed the view that the Craiova Army (AK), along with ideologically related military formations, was the only patriotic force fighting for Poland’s freedom in the 1940s. Of the former AK fighters, the majority of the “damned soldiers” were formed, who shot at the backs of Soviet soldiers and soldiers of the Army Lyudova.

The myth of the "damned soldiers" is classically anti-Soviet, and it was created in order to trample the history of the joint struggle of the Red Army and the Army of Ludov with fascism. The same ideological tasks are met by a recent initiative in Poland to demolish about 500 monuments to Soviet soldiers who fell for the liberation of Poland from the Nazis.

At the same time, the myth of “damned soldiers” is also an anti-Russian myth. The victims of the “damned” were often the Orthodox who lived in Poland, as was the case in Zalesheni, where the “damned” left only ethnic Poles alive.

The "damned" are responsible for the destruction of the remnants of the Russian population of Galicia, fragments of which still remained on the slopes of the Carpathians after the genocide of the Galician-Russian people in the Talerhof and Terezin concentration camps organized by the Austrians during the First World War. What brutal ways the last Russian Galicians killed were described by Galician-Russian educator Yuri Ivanovich Demyanchik (1896 -?) In the manuscript “Bloody atrocity”, telling the Polish bandit underground of his family (old father-priest, son-in-law and three sisters in the 1945 year) ) in the village of Skopov, Podkaratsko voivodship.

The official Polish myth of the "cursed soldiers" not only disfigures the history of the Polish people, it humiliates the families of the employees of the Ministry of Security of the PPR and the servicemen of the PNR army who died at the hands of the "cursed."

We are not even talking about the numerous evidences of the attacks of the “damned” on schools and other public institutions, where simple Poles — teachers, doctors, and officials — became their victims.

According to the style and methods of actions of the anti-Soviet bandit underground in Poland, it was a copy of the bandits of the OUN-UPA and the Baltic “forest brothers”.

        This Institute of National Remembrance (INP) as a state structure engaged in redrawing the history of Poland to the needs of the political situation, which in turn is determined by the anti-Russian policy vector of Warsaw,
        probably controlled by the CIA. Moreover, he probably appeared and grew up in Poland from some pro-American NPO with grants from the US State Department.

        This "handful" sons do not fight. They gobble up their parents' money, stolen from the people, abroad. And the parents of those who kill children and women in Donbass worry only when zinc comes. And the plundered by their sons, in the Donbass, goes to the "economy".

          Support!
          On the pages, in my opinion, “VO”, there was already an article that I remembered by the fact that the militiamen found a letter from his mother in a dead VSUshnik in a boiler in Debaltseve, in which she wrote disappointedly and indignantly in response to her letter son-VSUshnik: what, they say, do you write that the battles are strong and everything around is already routed: “So what does this mean? “Why don’t you send me the refrigerator you promised me from there ?!”
          At the same time, the mother of the VSUshnik just amazed me! She is not thinking about her son, but about the fact that she will not have the refrigerator promised to her by her son from the Debaltsevo "boiler" - so to speak, a war trophy as a result of the ATO punitive operation over the citizens of the DPR and LPR !!!
          Some Ukrainian mothers of VSUshnikov perceived - and apparently still continue to perceive - the civil war in Ukraine only as an opportunity to “punish” Russian-speaking citizens in eastern Ukraine with impunity - namely, to kill them and their property to profit.

                And here is the message from 08/06/2014. Say fake too?
                The leaders of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) announced plans in Kiev for the migration of 250 “zapadentsev” to the southeast in the abandoned houses of the “expelled” supporters of federalization. The republic’s counterintelligence has declassified this information to the public. The idea of ​​specialists from Washington became known to the Lugansk counterintelligence service, reports the publication Today.
                The information became known to the special department of the LPR army from the Kiev government of Yatsenyuk. Ideologists from the United States developed a program for Ukrainian residents to move the inhabitants of Western Ukraine to the east for a substantial fee. A quarter of a million “zapadentsev” from small villages will have to populate the best houses and apartments abandoned by civilians in the southeast. The first are prescribed to "occupy" the surroundings of Lugansk, Nikolaev and Donetsk, and the "expropriation" will be primarily subjected to the homes of militias and their families.
                “Lift” for migrants will amount to 25 thousand hryvnias (at the “pre-reversal” rate it is about 100 thousand rubles, now the hryvnia exchange rate has decreased and the amount will be about 63 thousand rubles).
                The start of the program is scheduled for November this year.

    "Acted in an environment of urgent need, requiring ethical and ambiguous decisions."
    Poles use a very good formulation to "excuse" virtually any crime.
    Only they use it very selectively.
    An example of Wojciech Jaruzelski.
    Since February 1981 - Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Poland, and since October 1981 also 1st Secretary of the Central Committee of the PUWP. From December 12 to 13, 1981 he introduced martial law, interned the leaders of Solidarity, who were the main opposition to the party’s authorities, and suppressed all attempts to destabilize his rule.

    “He was a very decent person. In fact, he saved Poland by introducing martial law in the country. When Brezhnev was informed that eight Polish divisions were standing around Warsaw, he had to refuse to send Soviet troops.
    - Marshal of the Soviet Union D.T. Yazov. "
    At the same time, Jaruzelski categorically opposed proposals for the introduction of Soviet troops into Poland. Since November 1983 - Chairman of the Defense Committee and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the NDP.


    In Poland, attempts have repeatedly been made to hold Jaruzelski accountable for his actions as head of state, but they all ended to no avail. On April 17, 2007, Wojciech Jaruzelski and eight other party and state leaders of socialist Poland were again charged with crimes during the years of the “communist regime”. He was accused, in particular, of imposing martial law in Poland on the night of December 12 to 13, 1981 at the height of anti-government protests by Solidarity union supporters, as well as of “leading an armed criminal organization with the aim of committing crimes” - meaning Military Council of National Salvation, which took control of the country.

    let us, dear friends, count with you Polish citizens who fought on the fronts of World War II after their defeat. I will give a few quotes from the site http://politikus.ru/articles/7571-na-chey-storone-srazhalis-polyaki-vo-vtoroy-mi

    rovoy.html ..

    "... For 2-3 million Poles, a grandfather or an uncle served the Germans. And how many of them died" in the war, "that is, on Hitler's side, how many survived?" There is no exact data. The Germans counted the Poles who were drafted in the Wehrmacht, only until the autumn of 1943. Then from the Polish Upper Silesia and Pomerania annexed to the Reich, 200 thousand soldiers arrived. However, recruitment to the Wehrmacht lasted for another year and on a much larger scale ... "



    "... From the reports of the Polish government's office in occupied Poland, it follows that by the end of 1944 about 450 thousand citizens of pre-war Poland were drafted into the Wehrmacht. In general, it can be assumed that about half a million passed through the German army during the war," Professor. That is, the call was carried out from the territories (mentioned above Upper Silesia and Pomerania) annexed to Germany ... "

    "... It is clear that the greatest losses were on the Eastern Front ... if we consider that every second soldier of the Wehrmacht died, then we can assume that up to 250 thousand Poles could have died at the front" ... "

    "... According to the military intelligence of the Red Army, in 1942 the Poles made up 40-45% of the personnel of the 96th Infantry Division of the Wehrmacht, about 30% of the 11th Infantry Division (together with the Czechs), about 30% of the 57th Infantry division, about 12% of the 110th Infantry Division.Earlier in November 1941, reconnaissance had discovered a large number of Poles in the 267th Infantry Division.By the end of the war, 60 Poles were in Soviet captivity, who fought on Hitler's side. full figure. About 280 prisoners from the armies of Germany and its allies, after a corresponding check, were released directly at the fronts. , Moldovans, etc.), as well as non-transportable people with disabilities ", - says the official documents ..."

    Now let's estimate how many Polish citizens fought on the side of the allies ...
    The so-called Anders army, trained and armed in the territory of the USSR, who left for Iran and later fought in the West ... 80 000 people.

    The Polish Army was re-formed in the USSR and took part in the fight against fascism side by side with the Red Army ...

    "... In 1945, the number of the Polish Army reached 200 people (000st and 1nd Polish armies, 2st tank corps, 1st air corps and other units), accounting for about 1% of the total force , who participated in the Berlin operation on the Soviet side. The losses of the Polish Army during the Berlin operation amounted to 10 killed and 7200 missing ... "(from Wikipedia)
    About 12 000 of the Soviet troops who fought as part of the Army in various specialist positions should be subtracted from this number ...

    Now let's see how many people united the Army of Craiova ...

    "... The AK had the largest forces in the summer of 1944, when it reached its maximum number for the entire period of its existence: according to its own data, it numbered a maximum of 350-380 thousand underground fighters of all ages (including women) who took the military oath of the AK, including about 10 officers, 756 junkers (auxiliary), 7506 sergeants (non-commissioned officers). In this underground army, there were 87 "full" conspiratorial platoons (in theory about 886 people each) and 6287 incomplete platoons (in theory about 50 people each). Thus, the total number of AK soldiers in theory, according to its own data, reached about 2633-25 people ... "(from Wikipedia)

    So make conclusions, dear friends, about the alignment of the Polish armed forces ... If the combat activity of the Craiova Army was not unambiguous, from the struggle against fascism to battles with Soviet partisans and partisans of the Army Lyudova, then the Poles who fought on the side of Nazi Germany were almost in twice as many as Polish citizens who fought on the side of the allies ...
    And they died, fighting on the side of Germany, more than the entire Polish Army, who fought against the Germans ...

      Here you can add Czechs, who were recognized as citizens by the laws of the Reich and called up for military service. However, we are talking about something else: at the time of the entry of Soviet troops into Poland, a civil war broke out in Poland, while the allied relations between the USSR, on the one hand, and the United States and Great Britain, on the other hand, began to be revised. AK took a politically anti-Soviet position, and a psychologically Russophobic position. The AK made a separate peace with the Nazis, together with the SS leadership, it played on the contradictions in the anti-Hitler coalition. Proceeding from this, the AK is objectively a Polish variety of Bandera, a pro-Nazi organization, always ready to sacrifice national interests for the sake of the "common European process." For the heirs of the AK, who, thanks to Gorby, managed to take revenge, even the foundations of the Catholic faith are of subordinate importance. Their religion is Russophobia and pro-Americanism.
